Something magical about these little balls of algae with their gentle spherical form and lush green color at times with pearls of air bubbles. Watching little Marimo float rewards one with a sense of tranquility.......a balm to heal your soul.

This listing is for one triple vase, 3 Marimo, 3 pieces of sea fan, and sand.

Comes as an easy and fun to assemble kit. Detailed instructions for set up and care are included.

The triple glass vase is about 3.5" H and 10.5" W


Marimo grow in tap water. Water change is only required every one to two weeks (more frequently in summer and less in winter). Normal household light is perfect.

Want to learn more about these fascinating water plants, please read on:
Marimo, literally “ball seaweed”, also known as Japanese Moss Ball, is a rare species of green algae, growing into large green balls with a velvety appearance and are found naturally in a number of lakes in the world. The round shape of the Marimo is maintained by gentle wave action.

The growth rate of a Marimo is only about 5mm per year. It is said that they can live for up to 200 years, which makes them an ideal family heirloom.

In Japan at Lake Akan a great effort is spent on the conservation of the lake balls. They were declared a Japanese Natural Treasure and in 1950 the first of the annual Marimo Festival was celebrated.

They are compared to the Earth in being green and round and in their need to rotate in order to receive light on all sides. As a result of photosynthesis, they float or sink in the water in response to light, and actually roll around on the bottom of the aquarium.

The Japanese believe that Marimo will bring good luck and see it as a symbol of everlasting love. It is also said that taking excellent care of your pet Marimo will make all your wishes come true.

A fantastic gift, maybe for a friend who could use some extra luck these days!
